CEO Insights Special Reception – 15 July

Greetings! After a fantastic turn out at the Spring CEO Insights Forum in Midtown, with 44 company CEOs in June, we had many requests afterwards of people asking to have more of a chance to network and talk with each other. Thanks to CI members, we have that opportunity. Many have requested in the first 2 weeks of this month due to travel schedules in July/August. You’ve got it.

Brief Topic: Japanese Art in Western Homes

Tokutaro Yamaguchi of Kyoto’s renowned Shibunkaku Gallery will give a brief 15-minute presentation on placing Japanese Art pieces in Western homes and will provide tips on what to look for when buying art.

Yamaguchi-san has a Masters in East Asian Art from Sotheby’s Institute with a dissertation on “Celebration of eroticisim and imagination in the Floating World in Edo period Japan”, with a Bachelor’s from Central Saint Martins University of Arts London.

The Shibunkaku Group is an art and culture corporation that is dedicated to the promotion of high-quality Japanese art and culture to the international audience and clients.

If you’ve not heard about this yet, please let us know as we only have space for 30 CEOs (half full as of 6 July). The great food is provided by Pembroke Real Estate Japan. CI group only needs to cover our drinks.
